hagel oversee something like this. they dignified the response. after both lindsey graham and john mccain said they were largely satisfied according to the hill, but they still wanted to push the hagueel vote back. in reality it's not like they actually care about any of that. this is purely about political grandstanding. and speaking of that john boehner is using the senate to excuse his complete lack of action in the house. >> the president likes to attack congress but if he's serious about enacting his agenda, i think it must start with the part of this congress, the united states senate. why can't he get past in the united states senate? >> michael: that's a really good question mr. speaker. let's get to work, senate democrats. joining me now philip ewing. he comes to us from washington, d.c. philip, welcome inside "the war room"." >> thanks for having me. >> michael: let's just start at the basics about hagel. once the senate gets closure what will be next for chuck hagel? >> the way it will probably work is that republicans want to vote on thursday to end debate on hagel. it doesn't

.s. military. >> michael: unbelievable. after those comments even senator john mccain told him to tone it down. and mccain has bipartisan support on this one. democratic senators dianne feinstein and claire mccaskill compared him to joseph mccarthy who accused american citizens of being communist. but toning it down is not in his repertoire. he was at it again. just to give you flavor for the place, this is the poster for larue tactical where the senator chose to call president obama's gun control initiatives wrong. those are mild from what he said in the past. cruz argued that the gun show loophole does not exist. he's a loophole truther. >> there actually isn't the so-called gun show loophole. that does not exist. >> michael: reminder, this man has degrees from harvard and princeton. clearly republicans have not learned from the last election. when americans made it clear that they do not reward crazy. cruz is now headline the super bowl of the conservative right. craze rewards crazy. he was at ted cruz's speech today and he comes to us from austin. welcome to the war room. >> great to be he

. that being said there was a lot of talk about this being unusually to filibuster a nominee. john mccain said he's not in favor of filibustering a nominee, especially not one for secretary of. i think it looks like there are going to be positive signs but there is no way that hagel is going to cruise through this nomination. >> michael: yes, if anything it seems than smooth sailing. mcconnell said that he did not disclose his personal finances. he made two speeches on the arab-israeli conflict, is this an issue for hagel? >> it depend on who is asking. i've read the article to see what it says. it comes from fox news, and they're complaining about two speeches that were given and all the speeches that he had given over all the public speeches, at this time when we live in the age of google to think that someone would be hiding speeches is ridiculous. >> michael: that's a great point. you have to see where it came from, and when things come from that news organization we always question it a little bit. >> "news." >> michael: yes, i see the quotes up there. it seems joe we've talked about it b

on that letter but not john mccain. it appears that headacheel will have the 60 votes to get past the filibuster and the 50 needed to be confirm: we're going head out to the political front where president obama's stock with the public continues to rise looming sequester cuts notwithstanding. and then a documentary that says, remember us? a hook at whose lives are still upside down because of the economic crisis. and later, 50 years after the birmingham church bombing we'll talk to the prosecutor whose life mission became bringing those responsible to justice. it's "the war room" on thursday night and we'll be right back. is is >> michael: we're back inside the car room. i'm michael shure. democrats and republicans keep checking their score cards. and from my seat it looks like the president and democrats are winning. according to a new bloomberg news poll out today 56% of americans view the president favorably. 47% feel the same about the democratic party. but here's my favorite. only 35% like republicans. americans also aren't going along with the blame game the g.o.p. has been playing by cal
